The horrible error message is bug 273978, what's unclear is what caused the permission error on rename. Can you reproduce this problem or did it only happen once?

Changed in bzr:
importance: Undecided → Medium
status: New → Confirmed

I can reproduce this problem both on WIndows Vista and Windows 7 box.
Works fine with bzr 2.1.2, though.

Strange, bzr installed by Standalone installer(bzr-2.2.1-setup.exe) fails, but bzr-2.2.1.win32-py2.6.exe succeeds!

aishimoto (aishimoto) wrote :

I cannot reproduce the problem with latest installer(bzr-.2.2.1-3.exe).

Martin Packman (gz) wrote :

Atsuo, I'll close this bug for now as the latest installer works for you. However as I'm not sure we made any changes that would have fixed the problem, please reopen the bug or file a new one if you run into difficulty again.

Changed in bzr:
status: Confirmed → Fix Released

I agree to close this bug.

Memo: I can reproduce bug with standalone installer(bzr-2.2.1-1.setup.exe) steadily, but I cannot figure out the difference. Removing all plugins didn't fix the problem.

Thank you, Martin.

I had same problem again. I think I figured out why the error happened.

I guess when bzr was trying to rename directory, virus checker had happen to open files under the directory.
IMO, os.rename() should not be used to move directories on Windows.

If you have the ability to prevent certain directories being scanned, can you try ignoring .bzr to confirm whether or not this is indeed the cause?

aishimoto (aishimoto) wrote :

I did, and I cannot reproduce the problem if I stop scanning working directory.
Also I aware this error happens only if repository contains large binary files.

Same problem (tested with bzr v2.4.1 or 2.5.0.b2)

Original commit was done from a MacOSx to Centos and the bug comes on a Windows XP PC (first time this bug appears). It is reproductible on other windows XP os.

Bzr update : (bzr v2.4.1 ou 2.5.0.b2-1)

I get the exact same error when trying to checkout.

- Tested with Bazaar (bzr) 2.5.1
- Tested with Bazaar (bzr) 2.6.0

Tested on the following OS:
- Windows 7 x64 pro SP1
- Windows server 2012 R2

Endurance tests on checkout operations gives around 15% of failures

Tested after disabling Antivirus and Firewall -> Same result :(
